Nan Goldin



Nan Goldin (b. 1953) is one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. Beginning in the 1970s, Goldin photographed her lovers and friends, shooting candid images of those closest to her. In time they have become some of the most important and memorable images of Queer people in America post-Stonewell. 

In the 1980s, Goldin further documented her social circle, which was often comprised of characters living on the margins of society in New York City and beyond. Many of Goldin's closest friends reappear images over the years. 

Goldin's intimate images put emphasis on her subject's individuality, infusing them with dignity and empathy, rather than their sexuality or otherness. 

"Joey" is one of Goldin's best-known muses, appearing in a large number of iconic images from the late 80's and onwards. The best images of Joey portray her as beautiful but pensive and mysterious.  Click here to see another image of Joey by Nan Goldin from 1992

In this image, Joey gently leans into the back of a chair, her chest bare and outwardly exposed. Joey's downward expression is partially hidden by her voluminous fringe, which contributes to her enigmatic presence and continuous glamour. 

"Joey with her New Breasts" is an important example from Goldin's oeuvre of Queer portraiture.
